2008 M. Chapoutier Ermitage 'L'Ermite Blanc', Rhone, France (750ml)
Vivid gold. The richest and most aromatic of this set, offering expansive aromas of singed orange, pear, nectarine, smoked meat and minerals. Weighty citrus and orchard fruit flavors take on a buttery character in the middle palate and pick up notes of smoke and dusty minerals. As rich and palate-coating as this wine is, its minerality helps it maintain focus and energy, especially on the very long, sappy, smoky finish.
